My bad. I am sure all of you noticed my error in the last post and I would like to publicly express my apologies. If you recollect, the previous post stated something along the lines of: "Goals in soccer are a dime a dozen." I always figured the phrase "dime a dozen" meant that it didn't happen very often. On our way home from work Karlie asked me what the phrase meant and I tried to explain that I figured it meant something was rare. Trying to come up with the origin for the phrase proved to be quite puzzling. I tried, "Well maybe it's because you rarely find anything that's a dozen for the price of a dime?" .....Believe me, that was the best of my guesses. So I decided to google it.
Knowyourphrase.com put it this way:
Ooooooohhhhh.... It's the exact opposite of what I thought it was. Oops. Karlie and I chuckled and I thought, maybe no one will notice? I didn't know what it meant so maybe I'm not the only one right? Wrong. I got home to Kaylyn and Anisa and we started catching up on the events of our days. Anisa mentioned that they had just finished reading my blog. I told her that I had apparently misunderstood the meaning of a phrase and before I could finish Anisa and Kaylyn let out a big sigh of relief. They proceeded to tell me that they had previously discussed any and all possible ways to break the news to me that I was embarrassing my future posterity. Alright alright so it was a bigger mistake than I thought. Don't worry, I corrected the post and hopefully in my next post I can tie in some really big long word to boost my sophistication points. Boisterous? Camaraderie? Ostentatious? Stay tuned. I may or may not have googled "List of sophisticated words." nbd. :)
